04/28/17WRCorey DavisAnkleQUESTIONABLEDavis, the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, said he isn't sure if he will participate in offseason activities or be held out until training camp, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports. "The ankle is doing great. I expect I can be on the field tonight, if need be," Davis said. "I don't really know what they're going to do, but I feel like I'm going to be ready. No doubt."

Once projected as a likely top-10 pick, the Western Michigan product was seemingly in danger of falling to the middle part of the first round after an offseason ankle injury prevented him from taking part in pre-draft athletic testing. The Titans apparently aren't too concerned, as his college tape makes a strong argument that he possesses high-end athleticism for an NFL wideout. Listed at 6-foot-3, 209 pounds, Davis had at least 1,400 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in each of his final three college seasons, mixing in some impressive performances against top Big 10 defenses to go along with his consistent dominance in the MAC. He seems to be on track in his recovery from January surgery, with recent reports suggesting he'll be back to full strength within the next few weeks. The Titans may have found Marcus Mariota's go-to receiver, which would allow Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe to fall into the complementary roles that they're probably best suited for. While it would be helpful if Davis took part in the offseason program, the Titans likely will prioritize getting him back to full health for the start of training camp. With fellow top-10 picks Mike Williams (Chargers) and John Ross (Bengals) landing on teams that already have strong receiving corps, Davis has the most obvious path to immediate fantasy relevance among the first-round wideouts, though all three should benefit from playing with established quarterbacks.

01/26/17DLMehdi AbdesmadAnkleQUESTIONABLEAbdesmad (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

The defensive end suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's loss to the Jaguars, effectively ending his season. In two games with the team he recorded one tackle, primarily serving a reserve role. The Titans promoted Antwaun Woods from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

01/26/17DLKevin DoddFootQUESTIONABLEAccording to head coach Mike Mularkey, Dodd (foot) is still dealing with some pain in his foot and is not "completely healthy," Jason Wolfe of The Tennessean reports.

Dodd ended his rookie season on injured reserve in early December after playing through a foot ailment for most of the year. The linebacker underwent surgery on his right foot last offseason, and it appears he never fully recovered from the procedure, although he was able to play through the pain for nine games. The Titans will likely play it safe with the 24-year-old in hopes that he will be completely pain-free for the beginning of the regular season.

01/26/17DLKarl KlugAchillesQUESTIONABLEKlug (Achilles) shed his walking boot and expects to be ready for training camp this summer, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. "It sounds like camp is going to be a go. So now I just have to put the work in to get ready," Klug said.

Klug, who ruptured an Achilles tendon in Week 16 of last season, is roughly three months removed from corrective surgery and has progressed to walking unassisted since shedding his medically-prescribed walking boot in early March. With training camp still over four months away, the veteran has plenty of time to make a full recovery and should return as a key piece of the Titans' defensive line rotation if he can avoid any setbacks.

01/26/17QBMarcus MariotaLower LegQUESTIONABLEAccording to head coach Mike Mularkey, Mariota (lower leg) remains on track for recovery and could begin running next week, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com reports.

Mariota has been present for the Titans' voluntary offseason program and is recovering ahead of schedule. He is currently able to jog lightly, but running at full speed is a whole different beast the 23-year-old will have to tackle. Look for more updates to come sporadically throughout OTAs and rest of the offseason as Mariota returns to full strength.

01/02/17DBJason McCourtyChestQUESTIONABLEMcCourty (shoulder/chest) was released by the Titans on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

McCourty's release comes after he spent the first eight seasons of his NFL career with Tennessee. The 29-year old cornerback had 69 tackles and 12 passes defensed, including two interceptions, in 14 games played last season. His release leaves the Titans with LeShaun Sims and Logan Ryan as the team's starting corners, though they could add a rookie early on in the draft. McCourty -- presumably past the aches and pains that he dealt with last last season -- is now a free agent and likely won't struggle finding a new club to sign with. The Patriots, who roster McCourty's twin brother Devin, are an intriguing option on that front.
